I know that I haven't been on in a while. During this year I have hit some rough spots.
Sister Pasted Away!!!
In May 2 days after seeing my little sister on Mother's Day she past away. She had issues in the past but was trying to do the right things when she pasted away.
She had began taking care of over grandmother and she had stopped smoking. I had told her on Mother's Day that I was proud of her and to take care of Granny. Then when I received the dreaded phone call on the 10th of May I could not believe it.
During the years I tried to mentor and teach my sisters how to become better people and how to make something of themselves. It seems that she had finally listened when she past away. R.I.P. Christy....We love You!!!
Since the passing of my sister I have been off again on again with how I feel about my weight. One day I would be focused then the next I would eat pizza.
A couple of weeks ago I went to the doctor to get a routine check up and he informed that I had to be put on blood pressure medicine. This did not set in so well. Because I am not that old. However, he said it was the recent weight that likely caused it and the stress. He did tell me that if I lost the weight I could eventually stop taking the medicine.
I am now more focused than ever at getting the weight off for good. I purchased a Bowflex for 250.00 and use it almost daily. I have also increased my cardio to levels that I was doing while I was deployed. My wife can't see the changes yet but I feel 120% better. My tee shirts are also getting lose. I can't wait to get the weight off.
I will be posting my measurements tomorrow.
